We continue to work towards the public good. We are focused on developing individuals who help their communities grow and flourish.
The Community-University Partnership (CUP) Grants program is designed to support the development of our regions through contributions to cultural, economic, sporting and related activities and build higher education aspiration and awareness particularly among young people in rural and regional communities.
Grants are available in six categories: Arts and Culture, Education Development, Indigenous Engagement, Health and Wellbeing, Environmental Sustainability, and Sports Development.
